French Club Presents Donation to Fellow Student
Students, faculty and community members have banded together to help support Massena High School student Stephanie McKeel, who is battling Cystic Fibrosis. Stephanie has had a difficult fall battling the effects of the disease, and her family has made many trips back and forth to Boston as she awaits a double lung transplant. On December 18, Stephanie came to school with her father and was presented with Christmas Cards and donations from the French Club, which had been raised for the annual Parlathon. The generosity and outpouring support from our students, staff and community has been overwhelming.
The total amount of donations from students toward Stephanie's medical expenses came to $1,801.35.
We are very proud of our students for their generosity and wish Stephanie a speedy and full recovery.
Band Room Mural Complete
by Shaunessy LaClair
IB Visual Arts student Cashlynn Jaggers recently completed an ongoing project in the Massena Central High School band room. Band teacher Jonathan Hunkins approached Jaggers in the spring of last year to fill in the back wall of the band room and breathe new life into the Music Department. Jaggers, with the help of J.W. Leary art teacher Nicole Charleson, started working on the piece in June and completed the 53 foot mural in early December, working for a total of six months.
The mural consists of seven different sections, each dedicated to a different music genre. Jaggers is pictured below with a 6-foot portion representing the genre of jazz. Other genres prevalent in the mural include country, rock, soul, reggae, techno, and classical. They also added a sense of Massena pride by including the notes to the school alma mater Northern Star, which runs through each section of the mural to tie all of the different genres together.
Mr. Hunkins and the Band Department welcome members of the community to view the mural. Jaggers’ hard work and dedication to this project will be recognized next Monday, December 14, at the Massena Central High School band concert.
